  • There is a parking area approx. 1km down from the lighthouse, after which point the road is quite narrow with no shoulders. If you don’t mind walking up several hills, the view from the lighthouse...

  • Good place if you cross over with the ferry. This is no Peggy's cove but still a pretty place. Saw a school of Plankton (I think) in the bay below which was great.
  • The Boar's Head Lighthouse is a great place to look over the turbulent waters of the Petit Passage. It's the payoff for a mild hike up a gradual incline.
